I’d like to help get the word out about Looking Back, Looking Forward: A Recital of Romantic Art Songs with Pedro Arroyo, tenor and Fabio Menchetti, piano on Sunday May 7, at 7 p.m. at St. Paul Community Church at 8221 Miami Road.
Pedro is a good friend and a gifted young artist who has appeared numerous times in our Music for All Seasons concert series over the past three years and will appear once more on Sunday April23 at 2 p.m. in Happy Birthday, Mr. Shakespeare, in which he will sing selections from Verdi’s Falstaff and Gounod’s Romeo et Juliette. Pedro has quickly become an audience favorite because of his beautiful lyric tenor voice and his impassioned singing. We encourage all of his CCM friends and all of our Music for All Seasons audience members to support him by attending either or both of these events and by contributing to Pedro in his pursuit of a professional career in Europe.
“As my tenure in Cincinnati comes to an end, I am looking forward to moving to Germany to continue pursuing a career in opera performance. Moving to Germany will be full of expenses, and I hope to raise funds* by doing what I love the most: singing! I have put together a recital featuring my favorite music from Undergrad in the Conservatory of Music of Puerto Rico, as well as from my Masters and DMA at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music, along with some surprises along the way. Please, join me and pianist Fabio Menchetti in an evening of beautiful music by Respighi, Strauss, Poulenc, and Turina. This recital promises to be a survey of the most romantic of art songs. “
* Admission is free, but free will donations are encouraged and appreciated.
